Ok so it's time for another ESAD blog hop. This time from the newly released Occasions mini catalogue which runs from now until 30th June. 

What is ESAD?

stands for "Extra Special Australasian Demonstrators" and it is an
on-line group just for Australian and New Zealand Stampin' Up!

We love what we do & love to share with our customers, friends, and
wonderful blog visitors. We also share what we love in our ESAD
Demonstrator community, through swaps, challenges, sharing knowledge,
ideas & friendship, and we're always there to help and support each

So if
you are a Stampin' Up! demonstrator located in Australia or New Zealand,
then please feel free to leave
me a comment with your Email address and I'll contact you with
information on how to join our wonderful group.

You may have arrived here from Delys Cram but if not just keep going around until you get back here. 

My projects feature the very cute Life in the Forest set.  I just love this - especially the fox.....although I had that song "What Does the Fox Say?" going through my head the entire time I was making the projects!  

My first project is one of those Cards in a Box that are everywhere at the moment!  These look so complicated but are soooo easy!  I watercoloured the images using an aqua painter and ink from the inkpads pooled inside the lids.  The green card around the base of the box is Old Olive cardstock cut to look like grass with the new fringing scissors in the Occasions catalogue.  These are a lot of fun!  Click on the images to see them in better detail. 

My next project is a very simple water colour using the fox again on watercolour paper and again the fringing scissors. 

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Please now hop along to Monique Fielder
